Recovery and alligators
My positive Covid-19 test result was followed by phone calls from the labs, doctors, and even the Department of Health. I was asked to self isolate for ten days.
I can be a maniac about things, since I had nine cases of water (40 bottles each case) in my home and plenty of food, I went above and beyond the CDC recommentations and self isolated for 21 days.
Today, is the first day I have felt zero body ache, yes, the body ache and faitgue have lingered. I finally went out to see the world.
That is when I spotted my first Florida alligator (see video).
Hope you are all well.
I am traveling to the Dominican Republic week week (for a five week beach vacation). Not sure when I will be posting regularly again, perhaps I will start on Monday. We will see.
Take good care. Be safe.
And watch out for the gators.
Feeling better, but
My fever finally came down to 98.6. The chills are gone.
The body ache and cough persist.
My test results just came back positive for COVID-19.
Beach Boy is staying isolated, drinking plenty of fluids, and taking good care of himself. Thankfully, I just stocked the fridge last week.
So my friends Ben & Jerry will accompany me.
Showing all the symptoms of Covid
Sorry, for the unexpected absence from blogworld.
Since Friday night I have been showing all the symptoms of Covid (fever, muscular pain, burning eyes, some shortness of breath, and severe chills). And they have become progessively worse.
Already canceled my two MD appointments for this week. Waiting to hear back from my doctors.
Not sure when I will return to blogging,
Stay safe. Be well.

rain on my windshield
a road slick with memories billboards pass silently reminding me of the unspoken words that have me seeing red ‘til they became traffic signals in the intersection of a romance on the corner of what could have been and what was never meant to be oh my insistent wipers keep saying no as the rain on my windshield evaporate, like drops of your love
I will always treasure your beautiful support. Thank you.

To my English speaking followers. This is a promotional video in Spanish, searching for Spanish speaking poets and authors. I will continue to post in English twice a week, but I am hoping to post videos in Spanish every other Saturday.
I want to grow this channel so it becomes a worthwhile tool for all of us.
